Amanda Serrano mauled Eva Voraberger in one round
A few months ago, no one actually expected Amanda Serrano to return to boxing as she had announced her retirement via social media. Not only did she retire, she was adamant that she will be focusing exclusively on her MMA career.
Then after witnessing her sister, Cindy Serrano lose a lopsided decision to lightweight queen Katie Taylor as she sat ringside, she would drop a bomb on the boxing community. Not too long after, DAZN announced a three-fight deal with Serrano had been reached that may see her avenge her sister’s loss.
But as she waits to build that women’s mega fight, why not go for a seventh divisional title? Serrano would enter foreign territory a she announced a move down to super flyweight to achieve this feat. What made many pundits skeptical of the announcement was she would be moving down twenty-five pounds to make weight in this fight.
Not only did she make the weight, but she did not disappoint in her performance. As the fight opened, she ran towards the champion and smothered her with shots.
Voraberger would try her hardest to create some sort of distance to stop the onslaught but it would be way too much for. Mid combination, Serrano would land a left hook to the body, crumbling her opponent where she stood.
That shot would grant her the WBO title and her seventh divisional title. Based on what she has accomplished in her career, she has a valid argument to cement her self as one of the best female boxers in the history of the sport.
All we can say here at 3kingsboxing.com besides congratulations is “bring on Katie Taylor!”
